The fifth president’s nephew, 55-year-old Jiauddin Ahmed, his wife Akima Begum and sons Habib Ali Ahmed and Wajed Ali Ahmed are residents of Kalamoni Barhampur near Rangia in Kamrup district.
They could not apply for their names to be included in the National Register of Citizens (NRC) as they could not trace their family’s legacy data or any similar document despite checking with their relatives across Assam, the sources said.
Jiauddin’s family visited their relatives in places such as Barpeta, Goalpara, Abhayapuri and Rangia in search of their legacy data but failed to procure any document that can be attached with their application as mandated in the NRC procedure, they said.
Jiauddin is the son of late Ikramuddin Ali Ahmed, brother of the former president.

The NRC coordinator, Sailesh, who released the final draft on Monday in Guwahati, emphasised that “this is just a draft, and not the final list. The people who are not included can make claims and objections”.
